Hi girls! I’ve been away from the thread for a few days, but I just read through all the posts and got caught up on your stories. Good luck to all, especially those of you in the two week wait! I think of you guys every day, even when I’m not on the boards.

Hubs went in for his SA today. Poor guy — it totally freaked him out. I guess we get the results sometime next week. I hope everything comes back OK. I think it’s easier for us women to accept the fact that there’s something wrong with us fertilitywise than it is for men, but maybe that’s just me and my husband…

Oh, did I tell you guys I bought an Ovacue off Craigslist so I can hopefully pinpoint my ovulation without having to POAS daily? I’m doing both this month to make sure it’s accurate, but hopefully it will save us money in the long run.

@babybunny: good luck with that!!!

 

@Mrs. DG: weee!!! another board!  thank you! πŸ˜€

 

Well, I’ll be taking a OPK/OPT (what IS the right abbreviation for them, anyway?) tonight.  Here’s hoping it doesn’t kill my back more than it already it! LOL!  Not that I’m going to let an inflamed back stop me from ttc!

@babybunny: I hope your hubby’s test goes well and the results come back soon! Sorry he was freaked out by the test. πŸ™  The Ovacue sounds great. I’m not familiar with what that is, but it sounds easier than having to POAS! πŸ™‚

Is it even possible to actually have symptoms this early (5 dpo)? I keep reading conflicting info. Some say no way-not until at least 7-10 days past ovulation. Others say they have had symptoms this early. I’m going crazy! Too Much Information alert…I have had sore nipples the last two days. I NEVER have that after ovulation, only before my AF comes. Ahh! This wait is killing me. lol

The wait is killing me over here too.  I don’t really think I have any symptoms, but I am curious about that.  The past few months I have had crazy heartburn during the TWW, making me think pregnancy was a possibility, but I wasn’t pregnant.  This time I have hardly any heartburn.  So…is that good or bad?  My boobs are tender, but more like normal monthly tenderness.  I am tired (normal, and due to progesterone) and then it is just the digestive issues.  That could be from anything…including pms!

@Jenn23:  Yeay for your sore nipples!!!  (well, there is a sentence I never thought I would be typing to another woman online!)  Even at only 5 dpo, I think that could be a good sign.

@heathaah: Haha!! LOL That is too funny. My husband by accident bumped me in the chest last night and I said, “Ow!!!” and then smiled since I’m hoping that the sore nipples are a good sign. He must think I’m crazy, getting excited over sore nipples! LOL  We’ll see! So that is interesting-when you have had heartburn you weren’t pregnant and now you don’t have heartburn..hmmmm. Sounds like a good sign to me!!!!!  I’m very tired, too, but for me I have bad allergies this time of year (our pollen count right now is thru the roof here in PA) so I can’t tell if my tiredness is any different since I’m usually very tired during allergy season. Darn! Why can’t the two week wait be just a two day wait?!!!!!!!!!!

@Jenn23: @heathaah:  I’m thinking of you ladies!!!  I can only imagine how rough the TWW is – over anazlyzing every tiny little body change.  I”m sending you lots and lots of baby dust.  My super power has been on hiatus lately, so maybe it’s time for it to kick back in for you two!

@babybunny:  I felt the same way when DH’s first SA test came back with not good news!!!!  It was easier for me to think it was all me, than for him to think it was him.  We are still waiting on the results of his second SA.  Good luck!!

So I have no one else around me that understands what we’re going through, so I’m sorry for the post but I just need to get it out:(  So I was getting ready to leave work yesterday at about 4:28 and my boss (who I graduated with and went to high school with) tells both me and my other co-worker that he has a surprise to tell us and since we are like family he thought he should tell us before we found out from someone else…….he said that him and his wife are expecting a baby girl in August!!!!!  I gotta tell ya…..my heart dropped and I started shaking and the tears started coming the more he talked about it.  Luckily I was up in the front office and he was talking from his office down the hallway.  I was speechless and couldn’t say anything……Now I am happy for him, but let me fill you in on a little something.  Him and his wife have been married for about 8 years.  His wife has never and didn’t want to have kids…..they have 2 dogs that they treat more like kids and that was all they wanted.  She can not do anything for herself…I mean he makes all of her appts. and does everything for her….which is just strange to me, but anyway….about a month and half ago he took her to the ER because her blood pressure was through the roof and she has been having problems with that for a while….while there they told her that they needed to put her on diff. meds and they asked why…..well, because you are pregnant!!!  So she didn’t even know she was pregnant until they were 3 and half months along.  And she wasn’t that happy about it:(  Even when he told us yesterday he didn’t sound excited about it.  I don’t get it….here is a couple who didn’t want kids and are having one and here I am along with the rest of you that want one so bad and are having a hard time…..Then he tells me while my co-worker is hugging me….”It will happen for you”….Not what I needed to hear from him…..so I left work bawling like a baby and am completely humiliated that I couldn’t control it……  Sorry for the long post, but needed to get it out!!!!

@stormy9973:  I am so sorry sweetie!  I have totally been there and reacted the same way.  It’s totally ok to feel that way and you shouldn’t feel humiliated.  This is a crazy emotional roller coaster we’re all unwillingly on, and you’re completely allowed to feel those emotions. It really sucks though that they’re pregnant and not even excited about it.  Jerks.

@stormy9973:  Ugh.  I am so sorry.  That reminds me of my neighbor who’s house is being forclosed, and the family is moving in with her parents.  Obviously this is a bad time for kid #2, but she was giggling and saying “oooops!  teehee”  when she KNOWS what I am going through.  I wanted to smack the b*tch. 

(Side note:  I still want to smack her.  I let her borrow a $350 suit and she returned it to me by hanging it on my car door handle!  I was obviously home, but she said she didn’t come to the door because she was in a hurry.  And it was a windy day.  I had to crawl under my car to get the shirt!  How come people like THAT can reproduce so easily???????)

@Candy_Nee: Thanks! What is your super power? Whatever it is, I hope it helps. hehe πŸ™‚

 

@stormy9973: Oh, I’m so sorry. That must have been so hard yesterday. πŸ™  We had a double baby shower here at work a few weeks ago (post baby for both co-workers) and they both brought them to work. Picture me standing by the cake table with about 60 co-workers fussing over both babies and everybody is smiling and laughing and I just wanted to run back to my desk. Ugh! It’s so hard sometimes!! I’m so sorry!

 

@heathaah: Wow, crazy neighbor!!! She hung your nice suit on the door handle?? Oh my gosh! I would have been livid.

@Jenn23:  This past fall/winter, I had the amazing ability to get pretty much everyone I know pregnant on either the first try or without even trying!  Here’s the list:
Co-worker and his wife – not trying not to
Best friend from TN – not even trying
Best friend from NC – first try (she and I were supposed to start trying together.)
Old roommate – not trying not to
good friend from NC – first try
My big brother – not even trying (no one even knew he had a girlfriend!  And she’s way younger than him)

I found out about all of these with in like 6 weeks of eachother.

@Candy_Nee: I think that is why it got to me because they weren’t excited…how could you not be!!  

 

@heathaah: I don’t get people…who does that???  I would want to smack her too!!

 

 

@Jenn23: I’m sorry that you had to go through that and with 2 babies no less….I commend you on not running back to your desk…It was like I was having an outer body experience yesterday…..I couldn’t control any of it and I am a person who has to be in control….I couldn’t stop myself from not running away!! I’m hoping it gets better, but I know it won’t!!

 

Thank you all for making me feel a little better!!!  I just hope that good things start happening soon for all of us and here’s to hoping for a fast week for you girls on your TWW:)
